First CRC Youth will do everything out of Love, Intentionality and Grace



Middle Schoolers will be taught the basics of faith as well as explore ideas about community, sexuality and service.

High Schoolers will explore deeper understanding of faith/doubt, identity and continue to grow in everyday spiritual practices.
